When there is a TV show in a prime time network lineup called "I Survived A Japanese Game Show" it's not shocking that "Factory" got picked up by Spike TV. None of Spike TV's original shows were any good, but this was just a complete trainwreck.
Neither of the four main characters are funny at all. The writing is poor, to say the least. The actors are more irritating than anything, and you couldn't care less about any of them.
I honestly think this idea came about from the creator watching an episode of "EXTRAS" and wanting to develop an entire series based on "When The Whistle Blows". Even though that show within a show was supposed to be bad, it still gave the viewer some laughs when ironically this show is supposed to be good, and isn't funny at all.moreless
